There’s no shortage of fabulous furniture stores in Saigon, many of whom will customise to your heart’s decor desires, but none quite like vintage bolthole Villa Royale.
Aussie collector David J Campbell has built up a veritable treasure trove of antique objets sourced from Asia and beyond, from antique armchairs and sedans reupholstered with traditional handwoven textiles from northern tribal enclave Sapa, to Europe-sourced chandeliers and heavy crystal glassware. Also wrap your peepers around elaborately engraved silverware, old-school trunks, marble-top commodes, fine bone china tea sets, contempo and fine artwork, and their very own brand of luxury scented candles.
For the perfect post-spree pep, vacate to the on-site cafe and gazebo for a lovely English afternoon tea with an Asian twist (think bite-size sandwiches from traddy cucumber to mango and curried chicken), plus petits fours and hot brews from luxe label TWG. Tea-riffic!
